Consequences

new working paper from US National Bureau of Economic Research predicts disastrous long-term effects of the COVID-19 lockdowns.

The paper, authored by Francesco Bianchi from Duke University, Dongho Song of Johns Hopkins University, and Giada Bianchi of Harvard Medical School, examines the long-term consequences of the COVID-19 lockdowns.

The paper predicts an excess death of 890,000 Americans over the next 15 years due to the unemployment caused by COIVD lockdowns. “These figures translate in a staggering 0.89 million additional deaths over the next 15 years,” the researches write.

The team estimates that woman and African Americans will be hit hardest in the short-term, but white men may suffer larger consequences in the future.

Pompeo has been getting it all out there recently. Last week he lifted years-old and self-imposed restrictions of US-Taiwan diplomatic relations. Being demob happy brings liberation. While this determination might not worry the evil Peking regime too much it does mean that US policy toward China must account for it. I wonder what consequences there will be for businesses and politicans who deal with the Chinese Communist Party. Maybe there would be legal consequences for carrying on with a regime which the Secretary of State has formally found to be guilty of genocide. I quite like Pompeo’s no bluster approach. Even if he’s leaving all this late in the day it’s a good call.

REFUGEES WELCOME

The UK will introduce a new visa at the end of January that will give 5.4 million Hong Kong residents – a staggering 70% of the territory’s population – the right to come and live in the UK, and eventually become citizens.

It is making this “generous” offer to residents of its former colony because it believes China is undermining Hong Kong’s rights and freedoms […]

In the end, Britain estimates that about 300,000 will take up the visa offer over the next five years.

I am genuinely gobsmacked that the Tories have actually delivered. I had assumed that their lust for Chinese money would win out over doing the right thing. I’m not sure that UK.gov is the best forecaster of how many will come here. I remember when 300,000 Eastern Europeans were predicted to move here. Many millions later …

There’s no point in allowing dynamic and entrepreneurial Hong Kongers to come here only to tie them up in rules. Their culture is one of economic liberty. That’s how they wrote the greatest economic success story of the 20th-Century. The Tories must be radical and let them build a charter city. Allow them to build Hong Kong 2.0.

London

A mob of “up to 40” males fought a running battle on the streets of London with swords, knives, and broken bottles, despite England’s draconian anti-coronavirus lockdown.

Metropolitan Police officers covering Ealing reported on social media that they had “responded to a large fight… in [Southall] involving up to 40 males fighting with swords and bottles,” managing to chase two from the scene and detained them after they were “identified as having carried swords during the fight.”

Germany is building camps.

Financial records from The Lincoln Project – the anti-Trump group lauded by the establishment media – appear to reveal that the group funneled over $10,000,000 to enrich its own founders personally through their communications and consulting firms, The National Pulse can reveal.

The news comes days after co-founder John Weaver admitted sending sexually inappropriate messages to young men.

Launched in 2019 by a cohort of establishment, so-called “Republicans” dedicated to “defeating President Trump and Trumpism at the ballot box,”  the group has routinely funneled the millions it raises to its founders and advisors, Federal Election Commission (FEC) records show.

IS EVERYONE DUMB?

Have a look at this and see if you can spot the problem.

What I see is just about the best environmemt for spreading infection: indoors, low ceilings, small rooms, air conditioning and no ventilation. Bravo to the dull-witted bureaucrats who signed this off.

Take it outside. Do it the car park. I know it’s January and people like to be near the kettle, but perfectly good gazebos will keep the weather off. Get some patio heaters in there and a couple of hot urns and the job’s a good’un. Really, has no-one thought about this?

RADICAL

How far the left has sunk into the Cultural Marxist pit. Hugh Gaitskell opposed becoming entangled politically and economiclly with the Continent. When he spoke to the Labour Party conference in 1963 he made these remarks, including his famous line about “the end of a thousand years of history”. It is inconceivable that any prominent Labour Party member, or left wing commentator, would speak in this way today, with patriotic pride.
